About difference between languages One should know that today in Prussia the German language is mostly used, and because of the latter the inhabitants do not experience such a misunderstanding, as one knows about the survived Old Prussians. The villages are also partly divided according to a language: in some there are pure Prussians, but in others there are pure Germans. In order one could perceive a difference between languages, the following words are given in both languages

Simon Grunau (died ca. 1530) was the author of Preussische Chronik,the first comprehensive history of Prussia. The only personal information available is what he wrote himself in his work: that he was a Dominican priest from Tolkemit (now Tolkmicko) near Frauenburg (now Frombork) just north of Elbing (Elbląg) inRoyal Prussia.[1] He preached in Danzig (now Gdańsk) and claimed to have personally met Pope Leo X and Polish King Sigismund I the Old. The chronicle was written in the German language sometime between 1517 and 1529. Its 24 chapters deal with Prussian landscape, agriculture, inhabitants, their customs, and history from earliest times to up to 1525 when the Protestant Duchy of Prussia was created.[2] It also contains a short (about a hundred words) vocabulary of the Prussian language, one of the very few written artifacts of this extinct language. While often biased and based on dubious sources, this work became very popular and is the principal source of information on Prussian mythology.[3] The chronicle circulated as a frequently copied manuscript and was first published in 1876. Modern historians often dismiss the Preussische Chronik as a work of fiction
